Course Description
This workshop is based on the Pochinko technique. Students begin with a focus on listening. Games and exercises are used to awaken and encourage a sense of pleasure, an awareness of one’s immediate environment, and an honest response to internal impulses and external events.

Individually, creativity is explored with colour work and bodywork, and eventually the students begin the making and wearing of six masks. These masks mark out the playground for the clown, guiding the participants through their innocence and experience, extremities, culminating in the “birth” of their individual clown.
